    IMG_0698.JPG I just did a water change and noticed that my betta's poop is a red-ish colour instead of its normal black/green/brown. Are there any issues on this? Or is this normal? (the pellets that we give him are green/blue colouring)
    I've also been noticing that he has been having a curved spine (Downwards) is that normal???
    (the water looks cloudy because of the glass being weird. )

    What do you feed your betta?

    If you feed him red foods, his poo will be red

    Hello :)
    Personally, I think he looks a bit lonely or stressed. I think you need to have decorations and things for him to hide in.
    My bettas love silk plants, they are super gentle on their fins, I recommend giving your bettas a soft substrate, plants, and something to hide behind or inside of.

    Do you have a filter? Did you cycle it?
    What size is this tank?
